I am an Associate Professor at Edinburgh Napier University. Before that, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Heriot-Watt University investigating ways of information presentation of uncertain data. Prior to this, I completed my PhD at the same university researching AI techniques for summarising time-series data in natural language. I also hold a masters on Artificial Intelligence with distinction from Heriot-Watt University. My main research interest is Natural Language Generation, i.e. the process of generating language automatically from non-linguistic data such as time-series data, database entries etc., Natural Language Understanding for dialogues and Human-Robot Interaction.
